Wet N Wild x Little Twin Stars Collab

I'm such a sucker for all things Sanrio.  Something about all of that brings me back to my childhood; it's very nostalgic for me.  Now that I have a daughter, I like finding things for her that are Sanrio themed.  We have a lot of Hello Kitty stuff in our home, and we (I), also enjoy Little Twin Stars.  Way back in October of 2021, I found that Wet 'N Wild had an entire makeup collection being sold at Ulta, that was Little Twin Stars themed.  I couldn't help myself and bought all of it.  I've got some of the products from the box, below with some swatches. 

If interested, the entire Little Twins Stars x Wet N' Wild Collection is available directly on the Wet N' Wild site and is now on sale.  Amazon also has some items. 


The entire collection, as shown above, includes two makeup sponges, a makeup sponge holder and cup, four lip products, a makeup bag, two lip masks, two face palettes, an eye shadow palette. makeup setting spray, four eye liners and two makeup brushes. 

Fun cosmetics pouch.

Two glosses and two satin finish lipsticks.  The swatches on the right are shades Lost In A Cloud and On Cloud Nine 


Blush brush and shadow brush.

I recommend the blush, very pigmented but super powdery. Be gentle when you dip your brush. 


I will say that I did not enjoy the shadows from the palette.  They were not pigmented, and had almost no staying power. A shame because the colors are unique and you could get creative with them.  I get a lot of use out of the blush and highligther. I wore the glittery stars as a cheek highlight on Halloween. The most fun! The blending sponges were just OK, a little dense for my liking.  Overall, this was a fun makeup set, with cut packaging and some good products that will definitely liven your mood.

BEAUTY FILE: KERASTASE RESISTANCE HAIR MASK

I am floored. By a hair product. The Kerastase Resistance Masque is the stuff hair dreams are made of.
Kerastase Resistance Hair Masque review
This is a hair mask, so I guess it's supposed to be reserved for those days where you're feeling indulgent but, I use it every time that I wash my hair.  I have been a fan of the Kerastase line since my high school days (you don't want to know how long ago that was.). For about the last 4 years I'd used the Reflections line and mask The Kerastase Reflection mask worked really well, made my hair soft and frizz free but was very strongly scented.  I dealt with the fragrance issue because it worked so well.   I thought it was my favorite Kerastase product until this gem.

Kerastase Resistance Hair Mask Review

The Kerastase Resistance Mask came into my life and when I first used it, it literally changed my hair texture - after one application.  My hair became really soft and smooth.   It works wonders, even in this Miami heat and humidity.  It's a little hair miracle, without the heavy fragrance.  You can get it at Ulta, Sephora but also sold at drugstores - my local CVS carries it. 

Buy it.




Disclosure: I was not paid to write about this product; every now and then, Kerastase shows me some love and mails me some products. xx

WANDER BEAUTY NEW FALL COLLECTION



If you've followed me for a while you know that Wander Beauty is one of my favorite makeup brands. They sent over some items from their new Fall collection so that I could test. The felt tip liner (High Line) is super precise - love! The Wanderess Rush eyeshadow palette has really creamy shades (both shimmers and mattes) that blend out well. I have it swatched below.

BEST FACIAL IN MIAMI- CAUDALIE, BRICKELL CITY CENTRE


I recently visited the Caudalie boutique at Brickell City Centre in Miami. The boutique, located on the second floor near Zara, has a quiet and zen treatment room.  The spa offers facials and body treatments by trained estheticians who exclusively use Caudalie products. This is an honest review of my experience getting what I consider to be one of the best facials in Miami

PREGNANCY FILE: CIRCUS THEMED BABY SHOWER


Miami fashion blogger
When I first sat down to write this post, we hadn't had our baby girl yet! We are happy to announce that Harper O was born on July 15th. Before her birth, we had no idea what her gender would be.  We were actually able to keep the surprise until the day-of!

When it came time to select a baby shower theme, there were a few gender-neutral ideas I tossed around: night/stars, animals/zoo/jungle, and circus.  I ended up going with the circus themed baby shower - so happy I did!  With the help of Pinterest and Google, and a lot of early mornings, I planned what ended up being a really perfect day.  My best friend pitched in and came through with the Nostalgia Popcorn Machine which was the ultimate finishing touch. This took a lot of work, and a lot of help from family and friends. We are so thankful to my Dad and our parents and loved ones.

Read below for circus themed baby shower inspo and a breakdown of how we made it all happen.
